Today sees the launch of the latest novel from Macmillan New Writing - Blood and Water by Lucy McCarraher. I shall be going to the launch tonight at Goldsboro Books. Looking forward to catching up with Lucy and everyone from MNW.
Here's the synopsis for Blood and Water:
BLOOD AND WATER
At 45, Mo Mozart has struggled to bring up her first two children as a single mother and, now they’ve flown the nest, she’s concentrating on maintaining a career while being a good wife to her second, younger husband, Jack, and mother to their little daughter, Lily. With the help of yoga, meditation and her close group of girlfriends, Mo feels she’s at last getting the balance of her life right. Until, that is, Jack’s highly strung twin sister asks her to help trace their birth mother, Caitlin, whom Jack wants nothing to do with. Her involvement in the search triggers turmoil in Mo’s life, exacerbated by the onset of menopausal symptoms, Jack’s involvement with someone else, and an old vagrant woman who unleashes unwelcome, supernatural encounters . . .
